Asbestos Survey in Leigh

Asbestos Survey in LeighAll buildings that are used for commercial purposes have to have an asbestos survey in Leigh. This is to prevent any employee or one of the public from becoming contaminated with asbestos fibres. Asbestos was, in its time, considered as a wonder material. It was used extensively for insulation and it is particularly fire resistant. The problem with asbestos is that the fibres are liable to break free and become airborne. There are two main reasons for having an asbestos survey, firstly as the landlord, tenant or managing agent of a building you may be responsible for managing any asbestos there may be in the building. Secondly, you could face a large fine or imprisonment for failure to have a plan to deal with asbestos and put it in action.

There are some regulations that managers and owners are legally obliged to follow. In Leigh, an asbestos survey of property is one of the most important. If the asbestos fibre becomes airborne through damage to the material or wear and tear it will break off tiny fibres that can be inhaled. If this occurs there is a chance that they could become embedded in the lungs and cause a fatal disease. The fibres are minute but very sharp and once they have entered the lungs there is no way to remove them. Our team will check the entire building and issue a report on the types and condition of all the asbestos in the building.
